Rex Burkhead re-signs with Patriots

Patriots beat writer Jim McBride is reporting that the Patriots have re-signed running back Rex Burkhead.

Fantasy Impact

The length of the contract hasn't been announced yet, but this signing has massive fantasy implications. With Dion Lewis leaving to the Titans in free agency, there's a lot of work suddenly opened up in the Patriots backfield. While Burkhead was healthy last year, the Patriots gave him goal-line carries and he gave them no reason to stop doing so. Injuries piled up as the year went on, leading them to shift the focus to Lewis. While the Patriots are expected to retain Mike Gillislee, Burkhead is the one who's locked into a role. He should be considered an upside RB2/RB3-type option in fantasy football right now, though it's very possible the Patriots add another running back.
